Hi Everyone,

I am going through interview at the moment and the team is asking to make a fully detailed project plan along with a contingency plan for a marketing automated engine knowing :

The design team includes graphic, web, and digital designers (who are operating at 100% capacity for the next 4 weeks)
Solutions team that includes developers and tech specialists (who are at 80% capacity)
R&D team (who are at 50% capacity)
Acquisition team (who are at 100% capacity for the next 2 weeks).

It would take time. I suggest learning from different people; that way, you can expand your pool of friends. It might seem easier to connect with someone with similar interests, but then you will limit yourself to meeting others with exciting backgrounds.

This...seems like a lot. I mean, I wouldn't go too deep but I think the basic stuff they are trying to evaluate is a) how you plan b) your thought process and c) how you're juggling different roles (and demonstrating that you understand what the roles entail). Best of luck!

That's work overload. When's the deadline? Maybe you can ask for an extra hand or maybe delegate the other tasks to others.

When you have those tasks that seem never-ending, maybe even repetitive, possibly a multi-day effort (or any other long periodic timeframe), set an "acceptable-for-you" limit where you would feel accomplished when you reach it.

Then, determine your energy levels and decide if you can/want to do more or call it a day.

Example: Setting a limit to how much daily progress you want to make towards a 10-15 page final deliverable for your client.
